Race Equality Report 2005

1. Introduction

The University’s commitment to equality of opportunity is expressed in one of its core values; ‘promoting inclusivity and valuing diversity’. The University has committed itself to providing a supportive environment where respect is shown to all and where all staff and students, regardless of their gender, race, ethnic background, culture, (dis)ability, age, faith or any other factor are encouraged to perform at their potential.

This report reviews the work that has been undertaken over the last 12 months to meet the requirements of the Race Relations (Amendment) Act.

It covers both the activities designed specifically to support the promotion of race equality and those which relate to the general principals of developing equality, diversity and inclusivity, of which race equality is a part .
